Central Carolina Community College began its Sustainable Farming Program in 1995 and in the fall of 2002 will begin granting associate degrees in the program. Sustainable agriculture is defined as a way of farming that does not erode, deplete, or poison the soil with chemical fertilizers. What makes this particular program unique is that it targets first-time farmers who have no family farming history.
